A relatively recent addition to the Air Max line, which emerged back in 1987, the Nike Air Max 270 was the first in the family designed specifically to be a casual lifestyle shoe. Since its release in 2018, the Nike Air Max 270 has dropped in a wild range of colorways and special editions, including a mental health awareness sneaker and a colorway inspired by renowned German art school Bauhaus. Oh, and as if you didn’t know, there’s also the upcoming Travis Scott collab.
The amount of eye-catching options available is a big draw, of course, but the 270’s popularity is also owing to its comfort. Inspired by the classic Air Max 180 and Air Max 93 models, the 270 boasts the tallest Air unit in the line’s history, bringing superior cushioning and support. Its mesh upper build makes it ultra-lightweight and breathable, and perfect for everyday use.
While the Travis Scott x Nike Air Max 270 might be a little hard to come by due to its limited release, there are plenty of colorways that deserve your attention. We’ve put together some of the highlights that have dropped over the past two years, from the watermelon-inspired to the more monochrome. Better yet — some are on sale.
